Manchester City were confirmed as Premier League champions last week Tuesday when closest challengers and city rivals Manchester United lost at home to Champions League hopefuls Leicester City and a lot of their past players including David Silva congratulated the Citizens on the feat.

David Silva is a Manchester City legend having spent ten successful years at the club before he left last summer. The Spaniard ended his decade-long association with the Citizens at the end of his contract. He went on to join Real Sociedad in his native Spain on a free transfer at the start of the current campaign.

Manchester City posted their new status as Premier League champions on their Twitter handle and David Silva quoted the tweet with his congratulatory message. During his time at the club, David Silva won the Premier League title four times with two of the titles coming under current manager Pep Guardiola.

Manchester City could have wrapped up the league title earlier than last week Tuesday but the Citizens were unable to do it even when they were presented with several opportunities. It had always been a matter of when and not if they would win the league title for several weeks.

The confirmation of their new status as the Premier League winners for the current season came around a week ago thanks to Leicester City. The Foxes needed a big win over Manchester United to boost their bid for Champions League football at the end of the season and they did just that thanks to the second half header from Turkish international CaglarSoyuncu.

Leicester City were able to achieve the win against an understrength United team named by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer due to fixture congestion. Young left-back Luke Thomas gave the visitors an early lead before it was cancelled out by in-form Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood in the first half.

The away win over the Red Devils means that four points from the final two games would be enough for Leicester City to make a return to the Champions League for the first time since they won the title in 2016.
